It is very rare that I say boy I wish I had that collection this is one I wish I had! Nice tradition, what a great family heirloom to pass down.

I would say a good grinder is the most important part -- I use a my cordless sawzall with a new blade for the bone cutting (when i don't use my neighbors meat room)

that is a good thing to point out if you already have a sawzall clean it up and you can use a fresh blade very effectively

I use mine to break down the cow this winter

they make a pruning saw blade for the Sawzall that is rather wicked the regular 9-12 inch bi-metal wrecking blades work well also


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Thanks fellas. I'm pretty proud of it, hence the display case I made for them. It's actually a coffee table with a thick plexi-glass top. I have added to the collection some over the years, still a couple I'd like to add but the majority were my dad and my grandpas knives. Grandpa died before I was born over 50 years ago, so there are a few oldies. Not all are old hickory but all in that similar style.

If I were Wolfie I'd start with the 6" boning knife, the 6" skinner and the 10" butcher knives. Should be the start of a collection he can be proud of.

Ditto on the meat hook, big help in not dropping a chunk in the dirt...

Pretty much all you need is a sharp knife, cut through the joints, bone most of the meat out, A grinder for ground meat/sausage, meat lugs are nice, but any clean receptacle will work, a gambrel and block and tackle for larger beasties, a hog scraper, or just skin them, and a cutting board.., you can get by with the basics...heck, our ancient ancestors used a flaked rock, lol

40 lbs hogs do well whole on a pit just saying

Well I'm pretty much set then aside from the grinder. Should I get a lil hand crank or splurge on an electric? Also what about a sausage stuffer ?

I bought a Nesco #8 grinder last spring. Works fine for about $100. I also bought a Haaka vertical stuffer that works great. I would recommend both. Bought the grinder locally and I bought the stuffer online through Wayfair.

Grinder all depends on how much your foing to do. Hand grinders are ok for a lb or 2 a couple times a year. Small electric ones will do 5 to 10 lb batches ok. If you do more then that start looking at a bigger 1/2 horse or larger. Same goez for the sausage stuffer the smaller batches you can deal with stuffing thru the grindee. Bigger batchez the stuffer is eay handy. Meat totes before the stuffer in my opinion.

Check craigslist and Facebook market place.
